Subramanian Lab

We play cellular LEGO

with protein building blocks.

We are fascinated by cytoskeletal structures that act as signaling platforms.

How does a dividing cell find its center?

How does the primary cilium act as a hub for intercellular signaling?

We address these questions by reconstructing reactions that occur on the micron-scale from nanometer-sized proteins

and quantitative high-resolution imaging in cells

with these tools, we aim to provide a glimpse into the spatial-temporal orchestration of the cellular reactions essential for life.

We have a lot of fun with our version of LEGO!
